DEFIANCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Though the modern woman pants
Last Line: Makes the breeches wider.
Alternate Author Name(s): Father Tabb
Subject(s): Clothing & Dress; Women

Though the modern woman pants
To disguise her gender,
Yet no fear my spirits haunts
Lest I should offend her.

Vain it were indeed to hiss --
Vainer still to chide her;
The hit offends her, and the Miss
Makes the breeches wider.
